F**king CNN.

This idiot is talking about how "bad" Obama looks in the Russia scandal. Of course he leaves out a LOT of details, like how hard McConnell and the Dump Campaign worked to stop Obama's admin from doing anything. Even so, he minimizes the sanctions the investigations, etc., just to talk about how BAD Obama comes out it this.

And then fucking CNN puts it at the top page with a big picture of "Bad" Obama.

What I hate most about the orange menace: He just doesn't get it.

The prospective loss of Notre Dame leaves me speechless. Better historians than I here on DU can attest to its importance in history, architecture, art, politics and even war. When we watch it burn we watch little pieces of ourselves drift off into smoke.

I cannot bring myself to write his name right now, but the orange menace in our Whitehouse sees only dollar signs. He has no idea.

I want a WOMAN at the top of the ticket.

I feel like this post is going to be mostly caveats, but here goes...

I WILL vote for whoever becomes the Dem nominee. I will not badmouth other Dem candidates, including the male candidates.

That said, the loss of Hillary to the orange idiot still stings. This country is so overdue for a female president, and we have some amazing candidates this year.

My personal favorite so far (obviously) is Harris, but I'm also a big Warren fan, and have a lot of respect for Amy Klobuchar. Any of the three could commander-in-chief circles around Dump, and I will be voting for one of them in the primaries if there is any chance of them winning the nomination.

Also, just overall, I find all three of them more credible, honest, and, frankly, smart than all of the other candidates. I believe any of them would trounce Dump in any debate (which I guess isn't really saying much).

I know we're all crazy freaked out about how to get the rest of the country to vote for a Democrat, but I truly believe it would be more of a help than a hindrance to have a woman at the top of the ticket.

Anyway, my two cents. Fire away!

Tucker "Don't Call Me Elite" Carlson - Vox


Refugee crime in Germany. Not.

This video is a couple of years old, but it's a great illustration of the kind of bullshit that MAGAts all over the world fall for.

If you've never watched any "Shaun" or "Shaun and Jan" videos, you're in for a treat. I recommend all of them.


So, Rand Paul is going to vote to block the "emergency".

But I love how the four GOPers' reason for voting to block is "What if the Dems come along later and declare a national emergency for climate change or health care? You know...a REAL emergency?"

Of course, they don't say it that way, but that's what I hear.

"Bengahzi!"

This is what I think Cohen should say every time a Repuke accuses the Democrats of wasting time with this hearing.

"Benghazi!"

This just in: Joe Scarborough is an idiot!

So, Morning Mika's Husband took some of his own "executive time" to pen a Washington Post op-ed claiming that Michael Bennet, Colorado's "soft-spoken, white son of the establishment" could be the answer to the Democratic party's prayers. (https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/michael-bennet-could-be-the-answer-to-the-question-every-democrat-is-asking/2019/02/11/4e90832a-2e2d-11e9-86ab-5d02109aeb01_story.html?utm_term=.acd760d6f119)

Leave it to proud ex-Republican to try to sell us on a conservative white, straight, middle-aged corporatist as the "savior" of the party he loves to preach to but would never join. Michael Bennet gave one good speech (and I'll give it to him--it was a good speech) on the senate floor, and all of a sudden he's supposed to eclipse the likes of Kamala Harris and Sherrod Brown as the one senator who can beat the Idiot Cheetoh because he's...what...so much like him?

Michael Bennet, just like Trump, knows what it's like to have everything handed to him. He only won his senate seat because he got to run as an incumbent, having been appointed by then-Governor Bill Ritter to fill a vacancy. And Ritter only plucked Bennet from the Superintendent of Denver Public Schools job (a position he was appointed to despite having ZERO school administration experience) because he (Ritter) had some personal grudge against the wildly popular Andrew Romanoff, former Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives. And despite Romanoff having clobbered Bennet at the state convention, Bennet ended up winning the primary because President Obama, in a move for which I will never forgive him, endorsed Bennet. (Why on earth Obama put his thumb on the scales in a Democratic Primary, I will NEVER understand.)

As Colorado's senator, Michael Bennet has distinguished himself by...well...not distinguishing himself. Until his famous "Ted Cruz is a big meanie" speech, very few people could have named the state he represents. He serves on three rather quiet committees, and his votes tend to be non-controversial, as are the bills he sponsors. In short, he just doesn't seem to want to make news. Now, that might be Scarborough's idea of presidential material, but I personally want a leader who...leads.

I truly don't intend to knock Bennet. As our senator he has been fine. Just fine. (Personally I'm hoping Andrew Romanoff, who just announced a run for Cory Gardner's seat, will make it to the Senate after all. Romanoff is my idea of a real Democrat.) I just think it's kind of rich that Joe fucking Scarborough thinks he knows what the Democratic party "needs." After all, when Joe served in the People's House--as a Republican--he sponsored a bill to withdraw from the United Nations, voted to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and worked to try to impeach Bill Clinton. And I won't even go into his own little intern scandal. Google it.

Joe seems to think that since Bennet isn't a lefty-liberal, that he can "save" the Democratic party. Well, I think that the 2018 elections proved that the party, and indeed the country, is ready for some loud, proud lefty-ness. And frankly, if we want to beat Cheetoh, the last person we should nominate is a milk-toast, "soft-spoken" centrist. If Joe thinks that's what this country needs, let him convince his own former party to nominate Michael Bennet.

Kamala Harris - Excellent interview

I love her more every time I hear her talk.



Racists stand by their statements

Fortunately, Coffman was defeated by Jason Crow this month. Let's hope the same thing happens to Hyde-Smith in December.
